PARIS, June 22 (MENA) - Three people were killed and one person was gravely injured after a building went up in flames on Saturday morning in Paris' eleventh arrondissement, Euronews reported, quoting the city's fire brigade.

Twenty-seven other people also suffered minor injuries, intoxicated from the fire's smoke.

The blaze started at around 5 am CET in a 6-storey building that also housed a restaurant, the fire brigade' spokesperson said.

The mayor of the 11th arrondissement François Vauglin told French media that "to his knowledge" the building set ablaze Saturday morning did not have "any structural problems".

Authorities, including Paris' police commissioner, are at the scene to investigate the cause of the fire.
